One Happy Kitty, Mimi in Buttercups and Forget-me-nots

Mimi is never so happy as when she’s out in the yard, as you can see by her “happy tail”. She’s so short that I can’t get a good photo of her face without flowers in the way, but perhaps that’s how she wants it. I keep a breakaway bell collar on her all the […]

Hearts and Cats Picture Frames

I purchase unfinished frames and add color and black cat silhouettes in acrylic paint. Your photo fits in the heart-shaped opening. Frames are 5.5 x 8.5 and are displayed using dowel pegs in the back of the frame. I add a hanging hook as well just in case you’d like to hang it on the […]

Colorful Handmade, Handpainted Trinket Dishes

These little trinket dishes are 3.5″ in diameter and approximately 1/4″ to 1/2″ deep, made from natural white polymer clay. Each dish is formed and painted individually. When I first made polymer clay trinket dishes last year they were kind of lumpy until I worked out how to make the shape for “Curving Silhouette”, but […]

Upcoming Events in May

If you are local I’d love to see you at any of these events in the month of May. I’ll have as much of my handmade goods as I can pack and set up, plus greeting cards, garden flags, prints of artwork on paper and canvas and selected originals and framed prints. I’m looking forward […]

Keepsakes Made from Vintage Cardboard Cigar Boxes

A month ago I posted a photo of my fine felines sitting atop a box of something that was soon to be another project, as soon as they processed the contents by sleeping on them. They handed those contents over to me I set aside this past weekend to get it done. More cigar box […]

Blooming With Gift Bags

Look what Mimi and I found when we went out into the back yard this morning. Our forsythia was covered with gift bags! This might have had something to do with our all-day project yesterday, which was to create these and more—over five dozen gift bags with feline art and photos. Whew! I thought I’d […]

We Were Listening to Granados, de Falla and Rodrigo

If you don’t know your Spanish classical guitar composers, now is your chance. I was listening to them while I painted this, but it could also be that Fromage was listening to them when I took the photo. No, this is not one of my Five. Don’t I have enough black cats, I have to […]

April Featured Feline Artwork and Desktop Calendar: Their Faces to the Sun

Mimi and Mewsette settled in the sun from the window on the landing, both of them enjoying the wash of the warm light on their faces as the shadows crept up over their backs. Often, big soft Mewsette settles somewhere and soon I see little Mimi tucked up against her, two girls enjoying some girl […]

A Nice Pile of Clean Warm Socks

“Oh, thank you,” said Mr. Sunshine as he happily squinted and stepped into the pile of socks I was sorting and folding. “This is just…so nice…purrrrfect,” he said as he began purring loudly and kneading slowly and thoughtfully with both front paws. Cats and laundry just go together as if the laundry basket had a […]
